Back to the re-barrel 50/95. Did get the barrel mounted and all looks good , head space perfect , feeds and ejects great. Putting the finish coats on the stocks, had to cut-down the new forearm wood cause of the short rifle 's shorter lenth. Look kinda nice. Going to try different barrel sights until I like them . For now a M21 and a Semi Buckhorn is what the little 76 -50/95 short rifle is sporting.  Looking to get the dust cover and brass lifter engraved with the proper markings. If anyone can recommend someone that can do the job, I sure would appreciate it . Will post a pic upon finishing if I can remember how.,,,,DT

dusty
i had my Uberti 50-95 dust cover engraved with the express, powder, and cal. designation. a friend did it on his cnc milling machine. i provided the text size and font . he had a spring loaded cutting tool needed to follow the curve of the cover. it came put quite nice. i still need to get the elevator cut with the proper script. the covers are so thin i am not sure you could stamp them without a precise steel backer die. another friend was working on a acid etch font template for me, it was close but did not cut very deep.

Thanks for the info Kwilliams1876 , a spring loaded cutting tool wow . I have seen a few different type of way's the dust covers are marked. I like the one with the 50 cal. 95 grs. Express in the old font.    It adds to the look of an express rifle .

Absolutely beautiful work there, Dusty. Also, this posting shows that you are a man of patience, a year and 4 month project.  WOW Now, from what I can tell, you possess all the 1876 calibers in some form of configuration on an original Winchester.  Is that correct?

Now for a half hearted joking question but I am interested in a serious manner, just because I do not have any related experience.  Why do you need a 'buffalo cartridge' (between a 50/70 and a 50/110) Shocked in order to shoot wild hogs?  I do know they tend to charge and that cartridge will give better 'distance reach' but.....?

The only 50 cal, I have experience with is the 56/50 Spencer (350 gr bullet with only ~30 to35gr of 2f).

Also, how many cartridges does the half or button magazine hold?  If wanting or having to use that big a cartridge for wild hogs then 'I' would want as many as possible.!!!!

Kind words BRS. Not sure if it was patcience or just lazy and slow. I'll say it real quiet yes to all four calibers. No need for the .50 on Wild Hogs , have killed numbers of them with a .22 rimfire . But the .50/95 is the newest  so its the one, for the moment . In all honesty my favorite 1876 cartridge for shooting game is the 22" 40/60 wcf. It is deadly accurate , and kills like lightning ! I have put three cartridges in the magazine. I think it will hold another ? ,,,DT

Well have fun with that new casing and good luck on you hunting with it.

I does look nice.

PS:  How are you loading that cartridge?  With modern dies or do you have a Winchester plier tool for that caliber, too?

That is the only 1876 caliber /cartridge that I do not have an original tong tool/mould for. I have seen only two come up for sale over the yrs' that I have looked. The last set went for an extravegant price.  I am loading with modern dies. Still looking. ,,DT

Very nice rifle DT.  I really like the half round/half octagon barrels, especially with button mags.

I agree the Half Oct. Half Rnd. Button Mag. is one of my favorites for style, and no question about it . The 24" Short rifle handles like a carbine but looks like  rifle . The best of both . And that .50 EX out of a 24" has a thunder clap and fire ball !  Not as big looking in this pic. KM. I think I found a fellow that will do the engraving on the lid and lifter for me. The more I look at the stock's the more I think I should checker them , in the Winchester pattern.  Any Thoughts?  ,,DT

The well-known Winchester restorer Mike Hunter can actually roll stamp the 1876 dust cover with the .50 Winchester Express markings that are exactly like the originals. He did this for my Uberti 1876 Sporting Rifle in .50-95, and it is perfect, like all of his restoration work.

http://www.mikehunterrestorations.com/

Needless to say, it is necessary to send only the dust cover for the roll stamping to be done. Heíll re-blue the dust cover in the original manner, after stamping.

I donít know if he will engrave calibre markings on the cartridge elevator, but you can enquire.

This load is shooting very well in the Express rifle. 510" .300gr. soft lead bullet over a casestuffed full and I say stuffed , with 2ff Swiss Bp. Std. Winchester primer Jammison case. She do have a thunder clap. Load slap noise on the target end also ,with these Blunts!,,,DT
